    There's no valid honest program I know of for that kind of procedure.

    For the most part you'll have to uninstall the stuff you've downloaded and installed in the Add/Remove Programs control panel and just righ-click delete the stuff you've downloaded but not installed.

    1. Click Start - Search - All Files And Folders, then delete everything that appears under:

    *.TMP

    C:\TEMP\*.*

    C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\*.*

    This will get rid of the loads of temporary files that you no doubt have in your computer. (y)

    2. Click Start - Run, type in:

    CLEANMGR /SAGESET:1

    then click OK. When the Disk Cleanup window appears, place a checkmark in everything, except "Compress Old Files", then click OK. Reboot your computer, click Start - Run, type in:

    CLEANMGR /SAGERUN:1

    then click OK.

    This will get rid of unnecessary files over and above what Disk Cleanup would normally look for. (y)
